3. CB Adoree' Jackson
One of the bright spots for the Giants this past season was former first-round pick Deonte Banks. The rookie cornerback out of Maryland impressed this year, making 53 solo tackles, two interceptions, and 11 passes defended in 15 games. With Banks' outstanding performance in Year 1, it's clear that Daboll and Schoen will build the Giants' secondary around him. Changes will likely be made at the cornerback and secondary positions, especially with a new defensive coordinator on the way.
Giants veteran corner Jackson is a free agent this offseason and will likely hit the open market. Jackson has been with the team since 2021 after playing four seasons with the Tennessee Titans, where he was drafted in 2017. Jackson was crucial in mentoring Banks this past season, but now the Giants should move on from the veteran.
The team will have to pay free agent safety Xavier McKinney and cornerbacks Darnay Holmes and Nick McCloud this offseason, and NY will rely on Tre Hawkins III, Cor'Dale Flott, and Jason Pinnock for the future as they all showed promise. With the Giants' secondary depth as deep as it is, there may not be any room for Jackson in 2024.
